    I have been working at Fractal Analytics

    Pros

    Analytics is a high growth industry that is very exciting with lots of innovation. Fractal encourages people to step outside the box and consider new ways of doing everything. We are working on process improvements in every aspect of the company and it's fun to watch the evolution. Everyone is so nice and considerate and helps each other to learn and grow.

    When other companies are downsizing, this one is moving up, way up and FAST!

    Cons

    Rapid growth with lots of process improvements so things are getting better quickly and people need to be flexible and agile to keep up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue crystallizing and communicate the vision for growth.

    I have been working at Fractal Analytics full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Key aspects that I like here:
    1. Freedom to find your own sweet spot and shape your career.
    2. What counts the most to grow is your strong intent and initiatives to build skills and drive the project, no matter which designation you are. If you are able to show the right ownership, you will get noticed and immense opportunities open up for growth in role.
    3. We can learn a lot from multi-stakeholder environment and in many cases, we are in a position to push the business to drive higher business value and free to lead it end to end. We are treated as true partners and our suggestions and recommendations count a lot unlike other vendors.
    4. Focus on outcomes without being pushy on how to achieve it. There is enough flexibility for people to get their work done keeping in mind their own constraints. Even in difficult situations, we collaboratively try and solve it instead of enforcing our ways to get work done. This has been tricky but we try our best to make this our way of life.
    5. I have seen some of the most internally motivated and inspiring leaders here at every level who are amazing to work with. You do not feel stressed at all and can completely trust them to handle situations. Some of them seem to care about business objectives even more than the client, which is why we have great client relationships across projects.

    Cons

    With great freedom, comes great responsibilities. While most of the team members realize it, some of them seem to take it for granted. Flexibility to change projects works well but only if team members understand their responsibility towards existing projects and client rapport. Hence while we are growing our employee count, it is becoming difficult to sustain the culture by hiring people who have right attitude and values. We are counting a lot on trust and accountability hence any lapse here paralyses the system.
    While quite a few projects have high reporting nature, there is significant business value that we can drive. However, it is difficult to explain or understand that when we only talk of advanced analytics in our external speech. Team don't feel enough value in what they are doing, while they may be bringing high business impact. It is important to make people realize the value in their everyday work else we may lose a lot of business due to disengagement and frequent change in projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to have career grooming plan for every level so that individuals are able to work on right growth path instead of feeling directionless at some point. Currently, there is an absence of direction setting at a high level. Goals are still more quantifiable and based on the nature of project one is in. Hence we need some mechanism to drive this better.

    Pros

    Everyday you feel like coming to work, because everyday the people around you act as agents of inspiration and motivation. The kind of expertise people have here as data scientists, statisticians, analysts, software programmers and managers is amazing. Plus the organisation is growing as rapid yet steady pace, which will translate into growth for all its employees.
    The work-life balance in this firm is amazing. You have the option to choose your project, your vertical, even your manager. There are options of flexible timings, including the work-from-home option.
    The recently implemented people principles mean that there is absolutely no micro-management, giving you space to innovate and learn however you deem fit.

    Cons

    The HR department needs to be up to the mark.
    The difference in CTC offered to joinees from Tier-1 colleges and those from Tier-2 colleges is pretty big.
